On Nov. 24, General Dynamics NASSCO of San Diego, California, a wholly-owned subsidiary of General Dynamics (NYSE:GD) , held a keel-laying ceremony for its third product carrier. The ship is being built for U.S. Shipping Partners and is scheduled to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2009.

NASSCO began construction of the ship in July. It will be 600 feet long and have a cargo capacity of 331,000 barrels. The ship will be used in coastal trade, carrying petroleum and chemical products.

U.S. Shipping Partners previously announced that the ship will be named Sunshine State, the state nickname of Florida.
